Monday, December 10th is a DAY FOR DAVID

— filed under:

Everyone who can will be sending positive energy, good thoughts, love, and prayers towards David & Family, wishing him a speedy recovery!

oaks-shock-protestOn December 1st, 2012, David Oaks fell off a loft ladder while trying to retrieve Bongo (his cat) from a loft in his home office. An MRI as well as other imaging testing later showed he had broken the C7 bone in his neck. He has undergone surgery, and he has a long road towards recovery ahead of him.

What this means is: David & Family need our support! 

There's a number of things that we as MindFreedom can do to support him, including moving MindFreedom's activism and non-violent revolution in mental health care forward.

But we can also send him our positive energy, good thoughts, love, and prayers!
To that end, we're setting aside a special day — Monday, December 10th — as an around-the-world, official MindFreedom DAY FOR DAVID. MindFreedom members and supporters will take time out to meditate on a good outcome for David and his family, in whatever way feels comfortable to them. 

Here are some ways you can participate in the December 10th DAY FOR DAVID:

  1. Set aside time to pray/meditate on a speedy recovery for David and comfort for his family and friends.
  2. Fast for part or all of the day in honor of David (remember the MFI Hunger Strike he lead in 2003?)
  3. Write a letter or card to David and his family, letting them know you're thinking of them.
    (Cards can be sent to the MindFreedom office: 454 Willamette St. Eugene, OR 97401 or to David's house: 2000 City View, Eugene, OR 97405)

Let's send David & Family the message that we — MindFreedom members and supporters — are behind him 100%!

Leah Harris

Leah Harris, a second generation psychiatric survivor, discovered MindFreedom in 2000 when she was 25 years old. Her first act in the mad movement was to tell her story of oppression and resistance, and to help edit stories for MindFreedom's Oral History Project. Since then, she has been working in various ways to help achieve the vision of MindFreedom: an end to all forms of psychiatric oppression, healing of all forms of "normality," and the creation of vibrant, colorful communities that honor and celebrate diversity, difference, and the full range of human experience.
